If you haven’t heard about Freckles and Laser Treatment for Freckles, then we bring you with all the required information. Freckles are basically circular or small marks on the skins, which gives darker tone than the normal. This happens due to over exposure to the sun. They can start appearing from the small age, but increases as the age grows and isn’t exposed to any treatment. In fact, they start spreading in different areas including hands, shoulder, and face. If you have a white skin, the freckles are clearly visible in the respective areas.
Why do they appear?
If you are living in the region where the summer rays are too high and increased surface of UV rays, then freckles can take place. In short, Freckles are caused by UVA (Ultraviolet Rays) and UVB (Ultraviolet Rays B) radiation, which activates melanocyte cells to increase the melanin production.
There are two types of Freckle-
- Ephelides freckles emerge during summer season when skin gets exposed to heavy sunlight. These freckles are light brown and fades during winter.
- Lentigine freckles are darker and doesn’t disappear when sun goes in
Many people like to remove these freckles right from its early stage to ensure it doesn’t increase as the time passes. This is when laser treatment for freckles is undertaken which is done by surgeons having good knowledge of using laser.

RevLite laser treatment is when the application of particular light wavelength, absorbed by pigment in freckles. The light which emits is known as PTP (PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse) breaking the freckle pigments.
